Mechanical Issue Delays Nvidia’s Shield Until July
The wait for an Nvidia Shield just got a little longer.
Nvidia’s Android-powered Shield console has been delayed until July, with the chipmaker citing an “issue [relating] to a third-party mechanical component” as the source of the speed bump.
“…some final quality-assurance testing has just turned up a mechanical issue that we’re not happy with,” says Jason Paul, who posted about the delay on Nvidia’s official blog. “We apologize to those who have pre-ordered SHIELDs and to all those who are waiting for them to go on sale. But we want every SHIELD to be just right.”
No one likes a product delay, but the recent price cut should soften the blow a little bit, right?
